The distance between Trichy and Chennai is 325 km. It takes a little more than five and half hours to reach Trichy from Chennai. The route is as follows: Chennai - Tambaram - Perungalathur - Vandalur - Otteri - Guduvancheri - Kattankolathur - Maraimalai Nagar (Ford factory) - Chengalpattu - Madurantakam - Melmaruvathur - Tindivanam - Vikravandi - Villupuram - Ulundurpettai - Asanur - Veppur - Perambalur - Srirangam - Tirichy.

We took NH 45, via Vilupuram /Tindivanam. The early morning road drive was awesome. Too many toll gates, but good roads help you drive smoothly; the roads are really maintained very well. You cal also find couple of good hotels and dhabas the way. Since we planned earlier, kept enough stuff in the car for munching. Over all its a good experience and we loved the drive!

The driving from Chennai is very comfortable and with nice in between restaurants like ARYYAS etc. It takes around 4 hrs to reach Trichy by road. After reaching Trichy, the traffic problem is there that you can manage. The food and beverage is nice in the hotel itself and available at a very affordable price. The service too is better and we have enjoyed our visit. NH 45 is the best road from Chennai. More »

Lovely driving down to Trichy on the 4 lane national highway. Once you get past the hurry and hustle of Chennai and its suburbs, it is a smooth ride with lovely scenic views and good eateries. The speed limit is set at 80 Kmph which is decent and one need not over speed to cover the 324 odd km. Distance can easily be covered in 5 hours with atleast two 15 minutes breaks. More »
